Hungarian

The chief member of the Ugric branch of the Finno-Ugric group of languages; official language of Hungary (c. 10 million speakers); also spoken elsewhere in Europe by c. 4 million people (Romania, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Yugoslavia, and the Ukraine) and in the United States and Canada.

The language was attested in the 13th century, but a standard orthography did not emerge until the 16th century. Hungarian is written in the Roman alphabet, modified with certain diacritics to denote vowel length and quality.

Vowel harmony is a characteristic feature of the Hungarian sound system.


CLASSIFICATION = Uralic family, Finno-Ugric group, SCRIPT = Roman
